Description

In a blinding flash of light, five strangers are yanked from this world and thrust into a land of sorcery as they are granted the looks and abilities of the people they were playing. This band of wannabe heroes soon discovers that having the powers they have always dreamed of, does not make life a dream come true. The Crusaders of the Light struggle to form a cohesive band as they blend twentieth century technology with the supernatural powers of this new world, fighting to liberate the kingdom of Cuthburan from the evil horde threatening humanity. Battle is also waged within Reba, an ordinary housewife who has become the most powerful mage on the planet, as she struggles to remain true to her wedding vows. Drawn against her will to the arms of Prince Alexandros, Reba must choose marriage toa handsome prince in a magical world or returning to the husband she left behind.show more

Our customer reviews

I had honestly hoped to have been enthralled by this book, and there were moments I was. After all, it is a fantasy, and parts of the fantasy drew me in. However, I believe that this book would appeal to gamers, fantasy-lovers, and the like. Unfortunately, I don't belong to any of these groups. I found my daughter more interested in the book and the story (although she is a little young to read the book). I told her I would save it for her because I am certain she would read the entire series. For the positives, I am glad there is no graphic violence. I am also impressed with the author's assortment of rhyming magic spells--not the easiest thing to do. I also appreciate that the profanity is minimal, and the bedroom scenes are fairly nondescript. I didn't need any of these things, but at least these were not a major problem. I am grateful that there are so many genres of books out there, and most of the time, it is wise to stick to your genre. Very few authors have the ability or the inclination to write books that cross "genre lines." That's not a bad thing. It ensures variety out there. All I will say is that I would not recommend this to people who do not like video games and/or fantasy. I think it is almost a given that this book will be big with those groups of people. I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.show more
